Son of the End of the Rainbow

My son leaves a message on my cell phone.

"Dad, something something Crazy something something Rainbow!"

I can only understand three words in the message, Dad, Crazy and Rainbow. My youngest son must be buying something for my grand daughter. Some kind of rainbow toy. I call my son Michael and he says he didn't call and I forget about the message.

About a week later my oldest son Mark calls and tells me he made the message. This is the first time I have ever made the mistake of thinking Mark was Michael on the phone. Mark has almost no Missouri accent and Michael has a thick Missouri draw to his voice like me.

Mark tells me he drove through the end of a rainbow and his car was full of color like mine was years before. Mark had called me when it was happening to him. Mark told me he didn't believe me till it happened to him.

Unless it happens to you I don't expect you to believe me. Sometimes tall tales are replaced by tall truths.

Bob, they say that this can't happen. (Something scientific about refraction of light making this an impossibility, blah, blah ,blah)

However, the same thing happened to my husband and myself in the car about 12 years ago. We were stunned and will never forget it. Left us speechless.

Thanks Nards

All of science is wrong on the subject and only a few of us know it. It's nice you had a witness:)
